This purchase was an awesome addition to my morning routine. I hop on burn calories and work up a good sweat. I can only do 7 minutes b/c the resistence is hard but I'm working on buulding my endurance.

I wish it came with different level resistance cables
I bought this product because ever since I moved from a house with stairs to a 1 story house I have noticed my fitness level diminish. I thought this would be a great way to increase my daily activity and have a safer workout around kids than with my treadmill. However, I'm 5'2 and 180 pounds.. (proportionate, but obviously overweight) the steps are VERY hard to push down (and I consider myself having strong legs).causing my foot to slip off the grips, I can't imagine if i weighed any less trying to use this stepper. I definitely wish it came with different cables, ones with more give for the beginners. Otherwise, great product and I'll just have to use it more. the construction is nice & sturdy, assembly was as simple as it gets and was put together in 2 minutes. the digital counter is accurate with the steps. Little did I know that 50 steps only burned about 5 calories. LOL but it's ok I still felt the burn with every step after 50.
I bought this stepper a month ago and have been using it every other day along with weights. I already see results in my stomach, buttocks and legs and best of all it's small enough to use/store anywhere in the house! If you are looking for a stepper for home/office use i highly recommend this one.
I bought this a year ago for home use. It works great and can be carried around the house so that you can work out in any room. It works smoothly and tracks the time and calories burned. I'm very happy with this purchase.
This would have been an excellent excerciser, if it had been made properly. Like some of the other reviewers, mine only lasted about a dozen times before the hydraulics went out and it quit working. I am planning on returning and getting my money back. I really liked the style of workout this offered but will have to find a better made machine.
